This book is traveling. The people are still trying to find someplace with long term safety. The story is well constructed and the author does a good jobs of switching points of view without getting the reader lost. None of the people are super heroes but they are trying to do their best. I look forward to reading the next book.
There's a lot happening in this book and it kept me in suspence from start to finish!In this book Sean Schubert definitely tops George R.R. Martin when it comes to killing off charachters... get your Kleenex ready to wipe away tears!There's no repose for our apocalypse formed family... the dangers are everywhere and it's not just the zombies they have to watch out for!I can't wait to see how this epic story ends in Resolution.
I'm tempted to rate this negatively as the beginning was dragging. Thankfully it picked up towards the middle and finished with a bit of flair. We lost more of the original survivor group; one especially tugged at my virtual emotions while another was unpleasantly and grudgingly relieved of physical extremities during a Q&A session with one of the more severely disturbed renegade men. As it so happens, the trilogy expands to a quartet (quartet in books?). In book four the remaining survivors will search for Shangri-La and an end to the fatal cat & mouse game.
This book starts out fantastic. It starts with a zombie-centered view which I totally dig. It also ties in the very beginning of the other books which is very cool. The book is doing an incredible job reintroducing characters. I appreciate this because I so often forget characters while waiting for the next book in series to come out! I feel like these books are hidden gems. They are such great zombie books especially for those of us that read a lot. I remember the characters and the book does a great job of reminding but I think that's what marks a good book. Great memorable characters.
Overall, I like the book series and reading about Alaska. This book wasn't the greatest. I didn't like how he backtracks the story to the start of the epidemic and lives it through all the characters. It's too much. Jen could have shared her story as they escaped and were in the car. I get it. She wants to find her daughter. It's her main goal. Here's to hoping #4 is better!
Love this series mainly because it takes place in Alaska and I can picture where they are at. It follows the show The Walking Dead with a little variation, writer obviously watches the TV series and could have used more creativity. But all in all I still loved the books and look forward to the 3rd and 4th book, maybe Sean Schubert will write a few more after to continue the journey.
This one was way more gory than the first two in the series... not sure I liked that. I'm hoping the last book is a bit less so...
